refresh your X11 instead of restarting it

this way you dont lose what you have on the screen opened when you want to refresh Cool

http://www.puppy2.org/slaxer/xrefresh-1.0.2-i486-slxr.pet

just click on the refresh-X

simple and very small its so fast don't blink Very Happy

Big bass,

I'm in the middle of something, and maybe your script could help. But your link doesn't exist anymore.

Joe

Thanks, I am trying to modify pcursorsel so we don't need to restart X to see it. Hope it can work out

Cheers

@Big_Bass,

This is a pretty neat .pet. Saves me the time to press ctrl+alt+backspace and then log in to X again. Even though it seem trivial, it does get annoying when you have to do it over and over and over...

Thanks a lot!!

Xrefresh is part of x11-xserver-utils. You can try this build from Trusty 14.04.

Stick it in /usr/bin or ~/my-applications/bin and run it >> xrefresh -none

You could just as well create a simple script and drag it to your desktop.
xrefresh.gz

xref64.pet


xref.pet

32 bit package was made from Semme's .gz and suggestion. 64 bit package is the same run code but uses the binary from the archlinux package found at https://www.archlinux.org/packages/extra/x86_64/xorg-xrefresh/.

___

tested the 64 bit in tahr64--appears to work (screen flicked really quickly; no longer a need to dread hanging (mostly gxmenu) windows?).

xref in a terminal, click the script (icon for it in usr/share/applications can be dragged to the desktop), or activate it from the jwm desktop menu.

cool new feature/old thread bump.
Very Happy

just checked the 32 bit version in xenial704--seems to have refreshed the screen (in the blink of an eye).

check to see if there's a green xrefresh cog and xref script in /my-applications/bin--desktop entry and icon call the script that relies on that cog (same if you stuck the thing on a taskbar, which is what i think i see in your pic). enter the command (xrefresh -none) in a terminal to see if there are error messages. archlinux link i posted has two deps listed--maybe your pup needs one or both.

i think the code defaults to the -none. xref calls xrefresh and asks it to do "-none," which is default, so yes, xref is short for xrefresh, which is a shorter version of xrefresh -none (i believe--i haven't checked over the documentation lately).

fine by me. how do you like it?
(i'm not familiar with your windows manager (xfce?), but if that's how it assigns keycuts, what could be wrong with it?)

sorry i can't help you more, kiramm. one thing i can help with is the location of the files--/root/my-applications/bin is not the same place as /usr/bin (though that location would work and you could link or copy or move the file--the machine looks there first so it may even be a nanosecond or so quicker that way).

the mouse problem sounds like a driver issue--i had something similar that was related to monitor driver (disappearing cursor).

not sure how useful it is overall--it doesn't fully restart x, it merely refreshes it. fwiw, i got an error message when triggering an autosave. i used xref and it allowed the save to go through. haven't had the hanging gxmessage window i thought would be a good test of utility.
